I'm an old softy!

Category: Bird Brain Blog | Posted: Thu May 05, 2011 12:15 am

This morning I had birds on the porch railing demanding food! So I broke down and bought a 50 lb. bag of black oil sunflower seeds. But I put some in the second squirrel proof bird feeder. It's one that has the movable perches on it and if something too heavy gets on it, the perch moves down and closes off the feeder. So the squirrels can't get any of the food. Unfortunately, if 3 or 4 big birds get on it at the same time, it does the same thing. I filled it and set it up, but after 2 hrs. the birds hadn't found it. I hadn't used that feeder at all this past winter. So I put 3 peanuts on the perch and the Titmice found them. And they found the seeds also. Then it didn't take long for the other birds to find it! So now they are no longer setting on the porch rail stareing at me with long faces! :)

Isn't it nice to be a big softy though? I know I get so much pleasure from watching 'my' birds that it's worth the money I spend on their food.

Funny that a bird can have a long face too :)
